EXPERIENCE

There is not abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterwards you can remove all traces of reality. There is no danger then, anyway, because the idea of the object will have left an indelible mark – Pablo Picasso

    My life experiences have been rich and quite diversified. Born in France, I traveled to many parts of the world. I lived in England, Spain, and Switzerland before coming to California.  After going to art schools in Paris, France, and in Vevey, Switzerland, I later worked as a fashion designer in Paris. I have taught different crafts, organized classical music festivals and concerts, worked as a senior executive in the natural health industry, and started and ran my own health institute. These creative experiences greatly enriched my life and provide depth and context for my first love, artistic creations.
